We had our Crealock34 in charter, in the San Juan Islands for 10 years. required a ASA rating to charter. wide range of sailors, including new grad's, to folks heading North in March for 3 weeks. we heard the range, "What a slow boat, wow what a dream, never sailed a smoother boat, all the other boats were throwing up, she glides with that drifter up, we were falling off those big ones and yelling give me more"
Throw on a drifter, don't pinch to weather, learn from the polar's, and we will be smiling when we get there....
In the San Juan's in summer 90% of all boats are under power, 10% are there to sail! don't know bout your area...
